Features

The iPF6100 printer's ink set is comprised of 12 colors: four standard process colors with Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta; plus Red, Green, and Blue; Matte Black, Gray, and Photo Gray. This unique combination creates a broad color pallet and delivers exceptional print results. The iPF6100 printer's LUCIA ink is specially formulated to reduce graininess and bronzing and resist scratching and fading. Black, Matte Black, Gray and Photo Gray have been reformulated to optimize black ink density for exceptional monochrome photo-quality output. Based on the type of ink being used, the iPF6100 printer automatically matches the correct black ink to achieve the best print results.
The iPF6100 printer is equipped with the ability to recalibrate itself to the original optimal factory settings and apply any necessary adjustments across all media types. At the same times this creates a more stable, predictable printing platform on which superior results can be consistently achieved. The system has built-in calibration sensors that accurately detect variation in print heads and measures the density levels of the inks and makes necessary adjustments to return calibration to the original factory settings.
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the iPF6100 boasts Canon's dual print head system to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. Unlike conventional printers with a single print head, the iPF6100 uses two high-precision, high density print heads with a total of 30,720 nozzles. It lays down precise 4 picoliter-size ink droplets to produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The superfine 4 picoliter-size droplets produce delicate color gradations and high-definition. The twin lines of nozzles on the new print heads enable the iPF6100 to minimize the number of printing passes and still maintain print quality. The two 1-inch iPF series print heads, each with 6 colors with 2,560 nozzles per color. That's a total of 30,720 nozzles. More nozzles mean more ink is ejected with every pass of the print head, no matter what print mode or media. It gives new meaning to "high-speed output".
Like other powerful Canon systems, the IPF6100 is built around the innovative L-COA (Large Format printer Common Architecture) processor. When it comes to speed and accuracy, the L-COA processor is in a league of its own. By intelligently processing print data and directing the high precision, high-density print heads to deposit ink, the system ensures image clarity and color accuracy, even for complex graphics and color-rich photographic images. Combined with Canon's dual print head design and the most ink nozzles per color in the industry, the L-COA controller helps achieve phenomenal print speeds.  
The imagePROGRAF printer driver works with both Windows&#174; and Macintosh&#174; operating systems offering exceptional, high quality prints through easy usability and accurate color. The printer driver incorporates existing imagePROGRAF features along with new, easy to use functions. The monochrome photo mode produces neutral, high quality monochrome images with the primary use of the Black, Gray and Photo Gray inks. This mode helps to ensure minimal shifts in color that are commonly caused by the use of color inks in black and white prints, thus outputting neutral tones with smooth gradation. Another easy to use feature is the free layout feature2, which allows for custom nesting of separate images and documents.<br/> <br/> Features Web links (Support tab)&#160;- An html-based utility that provides access to websites through the printer driver Categorized Media list - Media names are organized in a hierarchical tree structure More detailed page preview --provides a more clearer and more intuitive preview Scan to Copy&#160;- imageRUNNER enlargement copy 14 preset document profiles (examples are Poster, CAD, Photo) Automatic print quality options dependent on print application and media Borderless printing Saturation Adjustment Easy Setting/Advanced Setting/Print Setting Monochrome photo mode Support for Adobe RGB Free layout feature
